on this item. i know there have been folks focused on these questions for a long time and probably city staffers watching this hearing not sharing their shoats and i am looking and the policy makers are looking to have an open dialogue with these moatings and what i find in coit meetings everyone agrees and projects take 15 years and millions of dollars over budget to get done and i am getting frankly frustrated and tired about that, so i encourage city staffers and others who have an opinion on this and feel free to raise them in coit meetings or contact my office and i am willing to have more private conversations and i think having an open dialogue how we strengthen our operations. how we can work better with the department of technology and all of these are important. just as the chairman described for this item we were asked by the civil grand jury to give our perspective on a variety of items and you asked us to comment on dozens and dozens of items, and i would suggest for the future if possible, and as someone who sits on the committee and goes through the findings and possibl
meeting of the government audit and oversight committee today on monday october 29 here in the city and county of san francisco home of the world series champions giants. i am supervisor mark farrell. i am the chair of the committee and joined by supervisor chiu and will be joined by supervisor elsbernd. i want to thank the staff for covering today's meeting. madam clerk do we have any announcements? >> yes. please make sure to silent any electronic devices and items acted upon today will be on the agenda anyplace otherwise stated. q. can you do item one and two together please? >> item one is a hearing and resolution and "deja vu all over again: san francisco's technology needs a culture shock." >> thank you very much. president chiu. >> thank you mr. chair. i wanted to make a couple of introductory comments and thank you for taking part in this hearing and in particular i want to thank the civil grand jury report for looking at this topic. i decided to bring with me today these folders. these folders represent all of the documents i have been looking at in the last couple
to additional improvements. today there is no apparent leadership within san francisco to make important city wide changes happen efficiently and effectively as the samples i have given show. there is no ekz organization structure that sorts out what changes to make or manages how to make them. coit and the city cio do not venture in that realm. if not them, whom? the mayor claims he -- innovation mayor or technology may or as his response to our report claims but that reflects his priority and attracting tech companies to san francisco or having his staff work on apps that are helpful. he does little to improve the technology at home within his city government. the mayor has had hand on's experience as the execute administrative officer and the head of ddw. perhaps that experience has been him in the experience of this and i hope he considers technology an integral part of city operations that needs to and can be improved. that city technology is a significant priority for him and his staff. perhaps you, the board of supervisors, can help or it's deja vu all over again. you've had our
in a fancy condo buildings in this city. you can have an extra count that you want to rent out, and you can find access to travelers from all over the world who also do not have the resources to spend money on a $200 hotel bill who want to say on your couch, and that is really democratizing travel, not just access to travel, but also access to the tourism economy that flourishes in the city. >> i just want to address the technology point really quickly. we try and emphasize the human aspect of this, whether it is on the website or whether it is through the iphone app. other people use a device that we built, that lets you share a car more conveniently by letting the richer unlock the car with their smartphone. even with that, we really try to connect the people who are sharing because a lot of people to accept rentals just with the kit and may never meet the people they are sharing with. we tried to encourage the parties to get to know each other, trying to just display your interest or so many things i can think of that our websites due to show who this person really is. they take their ph

. come join my team. i am bootstrapping things. cities are the original sharing platform. we manage parking through parking meters. we manage books through public libraries. we manage our natural resources through parks. cities have played this role. in this bidding we're having this conversation in san francisco at -- it is negative beating -- it is fitting that we're having this conversation in san francisco at spur. i think it is off somewhere one of the first cities, i think the only city, and has put together a working group around the sharing economy. we are the epicenter in san francisco. we have a role to help nurture the emerging space. there is a lot of value to be created here. i am really excited to be part of the panel seeing all of these great people next to me. >> the people on the panel are going to tell us about their companies. let's come straight down the line. >> i am a co-founder and ceo of viable, a community marketplace for travel experiences. anybody can offer their services to others as a guide, offering touristrs, sailing ships, cookig class. we have enable

. i have materials we passed out to city employees and business and happy to answer any questions that you have. >> may i ask a question? thank you. i actually just have one question. since the launch of bmw's recent one way car sharing program, could you talk to us a little about the benefits we're getting out of the program where they're working the downtown area? >> so, the bmw car sharing program, the reason that we got behind raising awareness about the launch of that program in san francisco is it's unique in that it added 50 plug-in electric vehicles to the suite. so, that was an unusual development for a car sharing company. because they're a private company, we aren't tracking the success and don't actually have any control over that program. really from our perspective the compelling component was those 50 electric vehicle plug-ins are added to our space and are available to you. >> in terms of value, the the city gets urban bragging rights, we have the electric car? >> the intrinsic value, additional options for peep to access the vehicle if they don't want to buy one t
inspections, they may never open again, leaving new york city without water. so they chose to keep them open. as a result, there has not been significant inspection, maintenance, or repair of the tunnels in decades. no one knows their current condition. hurwitz: currently, city tunnel 1 and city tunnel number 2 would be feeding each half of the city. so you'd lose half the city if you didn't have a replacement. narrator: without half of its water supply, the city would shut down. for nearly 40 years, new york has been in the process of constructing a solution. man: this project is water tunnel number 3. we started on this project in 1969. i'm a sandhog. i've been a sandhog for 37 years. narrator: sandhogs are the men of local 147, who work deep below the city. they began building the infrastructure of new york in 1872. from the subways to the sewers, the water tunnels to the highway tunnels, new york city thrives because of their work. ryan: you got one little hole in the ground, and nobody knows we're here. see the empire state building, right. that's 1,000 feet. so you figure, you go down
cities have been brought to a stand still. this is the scene in manhattan where a crane is dangling from a 65-story building. >> it's a monday morning in manhattan unlike any other. the city that's supposed to never sleep is eerily quiet, awaiting the storm. subway stopped. even wall street not trading. the -- >> we're used to coming down and the water calm, much, much slower. it's over the banks and the storm hasn't gotten here. it makes me nervous. >> the impact of hurricane sandy is starting to be felt. high winds and crashing waves along the east coast. >> good morning, america. breaking news on the halloween superstorm. >> morning tv shows left americans in in doubt the storm severity. >> 15 million people in its path. >> storm preparations take precedence over campaigning for next week's presidential election. mitt romney canceled his events for two days. barack obama returned to the white house. >> the center of the storm is going to hit landfall sometime this evening, but because of the nature of this storm, we are certain that this is going to be a slow-moving process through a
of the storms. it gets thrown out of wac when it merge with another storm. it seems like ocean city, atlanta city, new york city are all suffering the brunt of this and expecting far worse conditions than we're seeing here. >> on two counts, brian. this is a hybrid storm, and front loaded with rain and wind on the southwest side of it. so they got all of that earlier. than we're getting the strong wind and surge into the areas. so it's like a two for one nightmare special. >> and the heavy snows and the cold air to the west. that could be a problem, which could cause a lot of power outages when you're getting snow piling up out there. >> and i was thinking about something you asked earlier brian, because the forward motion of the hurricane. would that shorten the window for >>> we don't know what it will do when it comes to shore in the next 35 to 40 minutes, because there's a frontal boundary causing it to intense. that remains to be seen. the models have it somewhere north of the mason dickson line at two in the morning with 75 miles per hour winds. >> we know this as well. it's transferri

as supervisor and together we will turn san francisco into the city that we knew that it could be, coming out of the difficulties into the future that is brighter and more prosperous and above all more cooperative where our quality of life arises from the closeness of our communities and the strength of our spirits. thank you. >> hi, my name is davis, i'm running for supervisor in district five. san francisco faces the challenges for improve the liefps of the people that live here. we need leadership to meet our challenges and address homelessness and build affordable housing and build the schools and keep us safe. i am running for supervisor to keep san francisco real. our city is a social, economic and political cross roads. in so many ways, the every-day people that keep this city special, the artists, the students, the young families, the seniors on fixed income, working people and every day people of all strides are having a harder and harder time surviving much less thriving in our city. one of the reasons is that our economic development policies are currently much too focused on the b
experience. a new facility dedicated to serving students as is city college. this particular educational facility, though, has a long history and struggle, a lot of false starts and reboots and now it's here. i've been working on this along with many other people for about 5 years and i just wanted to thank some of the people that i've been working with and i'm not going to mention everyone because there are so many people who have, are responsible for this wonderful facility. but the person i want to thank first is our honorable trustee lawrence wong, who this would not have been, we would not be here if it was not for him. i also want to thank someone who i worked very closely with during the construction of this building and that's our, that's our previous chancellor, dr. don griffin, the chancellor who built this facility through many trials and tribulations but he got it done on time and on budget, which is a wonderful, wonderful statement. i also want to thank some of the board members who, the members of the facilities committee who every year -- every year, every month -- met an
? >> it is a couple hundred miles to 300 miles east-southeast of ocean city and we think it will bypass the mouth of the chesapeake bay. i hate to say this for folks in new jersey but we wanted it to come on shore and new jersey and that is better for us. we look at the doppler and we see heavy rain on the outer bands on the eastern shore counties. that is represented by the dark orange and yellows that you see. i will set this in motion and it is going east to west as it passes by off of the delmarva coastline. the heaviest rain should stay from baltimore east. in the western suburbs i think it will be just light rain it start but everybody will get the heavy rain eventually. we expect from two it eight rain through the evening and jeovernight. the winds are not bad around baltimore. north wind at 10 at b.w.i., gusting higher on the eastern shore and beaches. the winds will increase through the day. you may say right now nothing is going on. but by this evening and early tonight it will be gusting close to 60 miles an hour. after we have had rain all day will knock a few trees down and power lin
>> [speaker not understood] with the mta. we worked with offices and city administrator offices city car share to select the spaces, city car share can speak to the specific events that they marketed the various [speaker not understood] for that. >> i'm sorry, you work with mta? >> yes. >> and you said you worked with which company? >> city car share and the city administrator's office. -- to select the spaces. >> okay. >> and your office as well. >> right. thank you for that. so, it was all done in english, is what you're telling me? >> i'm sorry? >> it was all done in english? >> no, i can't speak to that one way or the other. >> that's my question. if someone can speak to that. >> [speaker not understood] for city car share. >> [speaker not understood]. >> sure. we actually did over 12 different outreaches in the various neighborhoods, particularly in the neighborhoods that had no existing car sharing before. to answer your specific question, we did do an outreach piece in spanish. we did not do one in chinese. we planned to, we wanted to, but did not get one out. we worked w
. and take a look at this. the crane appears to be just hanging on. the new york city mayor says it's not in danger of falling. we'll take you live to the scene. as the monster storm moves on to it land and nails the northeast. >> hurricane on steroids, i think she just juiced up. >> do not underestimate lives. >> this looks like another meti where we need to come together all across the country. >> shepard: tonight, the epic threat from super storm sandy. ' its first from fox this monday night, seems the forecasters were right on almost every single point. the east coast of the u.s. now taking a direct hit from the most powerful storm ever to hit the region. ever in recorded history. and tonight, officials in maryland are reporting the first death they have just reported it. and what they are calling a storm related crash. a life look now point pleasant in new jersey where the sun has set near the spot hurricane is now coming ashore: they say the monster storm will spread devastation far and wide on east coast and far beyond. one of two main roads into atlantic city, new jersey. l
no. they didn't. ripped me off. that's what they're doing to every citizen in this city with government transportation. can't get from one end of the city to the next without hitting a traffic jam. the drivers that drive these vehicles, way undertrained. shouldn't even be driving most of them. it's all a big compromise. if you can't see that, you're blind, numb or dead. san francisco's public transportation is a blight. hardly anybody in this city is happy with it. but you seem to think that you can throw it on us at the expense of our culture and wave life just because you think that we need it that way. nobody in this city wants that type of public transportation. we're used to having public transportation that we're involved in that represents our culture. the crap you're throwing down our throats doesn't do anybody any good. thank you very much. >> thank you. is there anybody member of the public that would like to see? seeing none. >> madam clerk, please call item five. >> authorize the executive direct or to fund all agreements and any amendments there two between
does not have evaluation behind it but it clearly has public good. the city needs to balance the interest of all users as you consider developing cost benefit criteria for on street uses right away. use of right away such as car to go should have clear targets and metrics. for few years demonstrating thea benefits. this can be contracted out to a third-party if necessary. if it does not have any expected positive benefits, it should be reevaluated. two, the city needs clear rules everyone can play by. different car share models can have different rules but there needs to be some underlying logic and consistency. the city should be made whole for any loss of parking revenue. for example in portland car to go parking costs estimate againing of each quarter and trued up [speaker not understood] in the preceding quarter. all operators should be required to make their monthly hours of public parking data publicly available to auditing purposes by location gps. and cars at fixed locations should have certain utilization requirements 24/7 availability or [speaker not understood]. st
. -- step by step details. ava is in ocean city and she will keep us informed of what is happening on the beach. >> i wish i could show you just how cold we are out here. with the wind chill, it feels like the 40's. we are absolutely drenched in rain. winds gusting to about 60 miles per hour. i want to show you that as the sun is starting to lighten up the sky, the winds are a lot better, especially as the big towards the distance. eight-to-15-foot waves. they are causing a lot of rough surf and frost off the beaches as well. here come the waves right now as this bill through the vegetation -- they still to the vegetation. it is starting to flood inside each area. floodwaters are starting to make their way in there. big concerns in ocean city all over the coast. coastal flooding will be a major concern. mandatory evacuation in place south of 17th street. we will continue to see the water rise on both sides of ocean city. the winds could be gusting up to hurricane force as we go throughout the day, that will cause minor structural damage. as of yet, we've not heard any major reports
live coverage as maryland prepares for sandy's arrival. we're live in baltimore city. we will begin our coverage right here. >> i will give you the wide view and the close of view. we have good and bad news in boast -- both respects. the center of the storm, the white bob, on the right hand of your screen -- you noticed that it is a parallel to the chesapeake bay. that is the mouth of chesapeake, that is the center of the storm. yesterday, we thought it would go in this direction. it looks like that will not be the case. we will miss the worst-case scenario here in maryland. we still think it will come on shore somewhere in the southern part of new jersey later on today. the bad news is that the storm is getting stronger. the winds are 85 miles per hour. it will get even stronger before it makes landfall in new jersey later today. around baltimore, the big story this morning is the ring, not necessarily the route -- the wind. the rain has been coming down at about an inch, inch and a half per hour. we will zoom in and see what is happening in some of the rainfall areas. switchback over
american city to develop a water system and to take on as a municipal responsibility water delivery to all of its citizens. when william penn laid out the city, he actually chose a spot of land that had a lot of groundwater. however, by 1730, 30,000 people lived within the first seven blocks of philadelphia, next to the delaware river. well, 30,000 people caused filth in the city and polluted their water sources. the groundwater was not potable. and in one year, 1/6 of the population died of yellow fever. now, they didn't know at the time that yellow fever was carried by mosquitoes. but the health issue was major in that first movement to build a water system. narrator: so they set out to find the cleanest source of water. although the majority of philadelphia's water now comes from the delaware river, early engineers found that development along the waterfront was causing pollution. so their search led them to the nearby schuylkill river. philadelphia developed technologies to pump water from the river into the city. these technologies established engineering concepts that are still the b
and flooding along the east coast. right now, new york city, a construction crane has partially collapsed on top of a high rise building. it is dangling 80 stories above the mid-town streets. we'll go live to the scene where the streets have been cleared and nearby building have been evacuated. at this hour, the storm is threatening 50 million people from washington, d.c., to martha's vineyard in massachusetts. subways and trains are shut down in many, many cities, including new york and boston. airlines canceled more than 7,000 domestic and international flights today and tomorrow, stranding 15 million people. both candidates suspended their campaign events. we've got it covered from all angles with reporters in key locations and our meteorologist in the studio. first, let's go live to that dangerous, damaged crane in midtown manhattan. it's dangling over the streets of midtown manhattan. nbc's rheama ellis is live. >> reporter: authorities are trying to get them up in the construction site to see if there is anything that they can do to fix the crane that is dangling over 57th street. p
, but right now i believe the city is really challenged with issues dealing with equity and i believe there are many people who are being forced out of the city in part because they can't find jobs. so jobs has been a huge priority for us. trying to find -- trying to work with city agencies, with community-based organizations, to make sure that young people, especially, have opportunities to make choices in their lives. and so that is why we have been focused very much on job-training and wrap-around services in that respect also. i think there are older adults and other folks who also could use additional employment. so i think jobs is a big issue for me. >> miss johnson? >> i agree that it's difficult to pick just one issue. but i think a lot of our policy issues that we're having, that you have in front of us come from a lack of accountable. where is your money being spent? how is it being spent? there is a lot of mismanagement. and there is a lot of money that goes places we don't know where it's going. and you can see it running through all of this discussion of all of the
and i know that that is the interest that she is bringing and i think as a student at city college and now san francisco state, as an organizer in both of those places and so many other areas, that is the voice she will bring in. so i would hope that you move forward with her appointment. >> thank you so much. >> good afternoon. i got a chance to get to know richard hogan in our time when i was living in the ingleside neighborhood near the balboa park station and we got to further development our relationship both as political science majors at sf state and we both had taken an active participation in some community groups. mestly at sf state. and in our time together i got a chance to see his work ethic and what he applies himself as. we took the l s.a.t. recently and w i think the board would be delighted with his attitude and his effort he would part put form. >> is there any other public comment? if you did come to the last rules committee and if you want to speak at this time? >> my name wasn't on the agenda last time. >> i did present, but i received notice from the rul
to baltimore city, where the mayor is briefing everyone. >> will be closed. trash pickup will be postponed. please do not put out any trash this evening. i know that probably seems like common sense, but it needs to be said, please do not put out your trash this evening. if there are sustained winds that warrant mandatory travel restrictions, we will not hesitate to make that announcement. again, if we have sustained winds that warrant mandatory travel restrictions, we will not hesitate to make that announcement. stay tuned. any potential restrictions will not apply to any uniformed personnel, emergency vehicles, hospital employees, or medical providers. potential travel restrictions will not apply to uniformed personnel, emergency vehicles, hospital employees, and medical providers. we will reach the point of this storm this evening where people will need to stay off the roads completely, hunkered down at home, and ride out the storm. do not under any circumstance. turnaround, do not drowned. the port of baltimore is closed and waterway traffic is restricted in and around the chesapeake b
on octavia boulevard. * dissolution since the market octavia plan was adopted the city has sold or signed purchase agreements for seven additional parcels beyond the ones i already mentioned. oh, i think i'm one slide off, i apologize. let me find my place back here. okay. since the market octavia plan was adopted the city has signed or sold or signed purchase agreements for seven additional parcels s, h, j, p and v for a total of 21.7 million dollars. * f the city made a conscious decision that beyond the sale of the aforementioned parcel to the redevelopment agency -- i see, my notes are in a different order than the slides. i apologize. let me go back. all right. i apologize. my notes are stapled in the wrong order here. let me address this slide here. the city made a conscious decision that beyond the sale of the first parcels to the redevelopment agency it would wait to sell the larger parcels until the market octavia community planning process had been successfully completed. here on the screen you will see the sales that did occur prior to the plan adoption which were focused most
or as an organization with the city. when i joined the city we didn't have a plan or a governance structure or coit and sun shet and talking about creating this structure and we were struggling how much money were we spending on it in the city? when i came here there wasn't a report? and so it has been a long and complex journey, and i think it will continue in these hearings and going forward to be one of the challenges. i think we use technology on a daily basis and work and we are engaged and are we getting our money's worth and getting the service we want? and i wanted to revisit and my staff will tell you it's easy to hammer on the things not going well and i want to re-cap of the last five years and whether we're making progress in solving the problems and some of the projects are project related, operationally related and to your point president chiu and look back over the last four cio's and embedded in the organization and we need to talk about those in different conversations and i will be brief and i don't want this to be a marketing campaign, but we have made significant accomplish
of america's biggest cities and it's about to come ashore. conditions are getting worse by the hour. at least 23 states are now under warnings or advisories because of the storm's winds. damage could hit $10 billion or even a lot more. some states could see their worst flooding in a century. and in the appalachian mountains, they're expecting blizzard conditions. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> hurricane sandy is a monster storm, even though its center is still out to sea. tropical storm and hurricane force winds extend, get this now, for 1,000 miles. right now, damaging winds are blowing from southern new england across long island, new jersey, delaware and virginia. we have the full resources of cnn deployed on the story including crews up and down the atlantic coast as well as in cities that aren't used to this kind of a disaster. here's what the storm looked like this afternoon when the international space station flew over. you can clearly see the eye of the storm. right now, the center is closing in on southern new jersey. let's begin our coverage with our meteorol
not at all dandy. reports come in confirmed that hurricane sandy has hit atlantic city. that city was already underwater with the advanced warning of waves coming. leaves are eight to 12 feet. welcome, everybody. for the next three hours, we will be giving you nonstock special coverage on what is at stake on what is already a busy day in midtown, manhattan. it is about as windy and inhospitable as it has ever been in recent memory. further uptown, radio city, which is getting ready for its famed christmas show in a little more tha weeks. hang a left towards columbus circle, and you have an ongoing construction potential catastrophe developing. this is earlier today. outside a building known as 157. this is one of the grandest and most expensive buildings on the planet. i say that because when it is completed by the spring, it will be the tallest residential structure on all of god's earth. also, the priciest when all of god's earth. the penthouse of that building is $100 million. average sales for condos in that unit, and keep in mind, it is virtually all sold out, even before it was finished
question the city's liabilities are projected to increase in the next coming year. s what new or increased fees should it institute and i will repeat the question and we will begin with mr. crowley. >> i would say that one of the bigger things that we will have before us is the gross receipts tax check that norman talked about trading from the payroll tax which is punitive. the next thing i would do is increase the foot print on mos sony center and that brings in a lot of money to the general fund and erect a multi-purpose area and bring in more money to the coffers and a green industry. one reason to bring them in is people come and go into the city of san francisco and that is a large footprint. they come and go. the visitors spend approximately $1 million of revenue in san francisco every hour and save us $1,100 in services and that's what i suspect we should be doing. >> thank you. >> if the city needs to generate new revenue for the budget what fees should it institute? >> well, first of all we need to close loop holes. we can't have big office towers sold and pretending they're a
think that it's time that we revisit that legislation and given the enthusiasm that was seen in the city around urban agriculture and some of these community farms, i think that we really do need to find a way of legislating these temporary uses because right now it it seems a little bit too arbitrary in many ways and we need to have some kind of policy around it. so, i would like to work with mo and planning and members of the community to try to come up with that sort of a scheme. also, i agree that site was blighted for years and the farm has provided [speaker not understood] on the street. all of those things have revitalized the neighborhood and have put a lot of young people to work. so, i look forward to the buchanan mall being used for that hayes valley farm -- some of it being converted there. i believe there are other parts of hayes valley that would like to see that type of use. it's a question of finding a site. i think that's one of the limitations of having these cacs developed. many of us worked on the market octavia plan. we approved it when i was still at planning. and w
